Notice the bright red coralline algae on the rubble next to the tube worm.

Lots of hiding places for the shrimp. It's where they breed and where the berried females live, (or so I've read.)

Copepods maybe, H. rubra no. The larvae are quite large and quite distinctive.

Great pic, Ken! Hope I can take a picture of some of those soon!

All these eyes could see in my tank was white spots moving in odd-against-the-current sort of ways.

Rob, my opaes envy your opaes....they probably die if they went in your tank cause it's too nice. Mine are living in a IKEA jar for a year now ecosphere style...no WC no Feedings...

I'd love to see a picture!

I feed mine every other day or so and do occasional (about once a month) 1 gallon water change on the bookshelf tank, every two weeks for the 10 gallon. Did WC on both tanks this week when I moved opae and trimmed the chaeto.

The shrimp are very happy, it seems. :-)

PS: Are your opae breeding yet? How big is your bowl and how many shrimp?

I found when there was a heavy amount of algae and my snails were eating the algae, the shrimp followed the snails and certainly appeared to be eating/interested in snail poo.

shrimpmoss no feeding ever means not only no breeding but shortened shrimp life.
